Cocoknits at Chateau Dumas
September 9 - September 16
Learn to tailor hand-knit garments using beautiful Japanese Habu yarns while you tour the French countryside and discover the beauty of the Quercy. Advanced beginners and experienced knitters are equally welcome to join the week. We’ll start with a basic cardigan or pullover pattern designed by Julie who’ll show you how to chart your pattern to make customization easy for future projects. You’ll learn the Cocoknits Method and how to achieve a flattering fit using Julie’s original top-down, seamless construction techniques. Takako of Habu arrives at the end of the week to host a “yarn tasting” party which allows you to experiment with yarns such as paper, ramie, pineapple, as well as her extraordinary cottons, linens and wools.
